last I did apparmor was creating havoc with cups and cups-pdf. I finally
just got disgusted with the "feature" and purged it from all my systems.
Check the buglist for apparmor to see if it may be causing problems for

I'd also check your setup if you are having share print problems. Change
your links to your newly established fixed IP's and unless you've
screwed something up all should work just fine. If you still have
problems printing from one to another, just use IPP instead. So for
